    I think ancona might be more or less a color, so if that was the case there could very well be ancona bantams. I'm not at all familiar with it though. I know there are ancona ducks that grow up to be black and white (or rather white with random patches of black), that's why I mentioned ancona.

    But that chicks is very pretty - you'll have to post pics of it growing for us so we can stay tuned!

    Anacona is a breed, not a color. [​IMG] Their color is referred to as mottling.

    That looks just like my bantam Pansy. It was obvious at just about 2 weeks he is a roo. Still haven't figured out what he is, he is not much bigger than when I got him and is now 5 weeks old. Is feathering in beautiful with a sweet temperament. I looked at the Ancona pics and the leg color is very different, mine was always white with pale legs. Also kind of looked like Japanese bantam chicks I saw somewhere.
